Mini Turkey Meat Loaves

The girl who cuts my hair, Tina, told me about a barbecue sauce that she absolutely loves called Sweet Baby Ray's. I decided to try it. The taste is amazing! I decided to use it in a turkey meat loaf recipe and it was the perfect ingredient. Instead of a large meat loaf, I formed the turkey mixture into mini meat loaves, which is the perfect portion controller.



Mini Turkey Meat Loaves
Makes 4 (Serves 2-4)

12 ounces lean ground turkey (93% lean)
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1/4 cup plus 4 teaspoons honey barbecue sauce, divided
1/3 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup finely grated carrots
1/2 cup finely diced onion (about 1/2 small onion)

Preheat oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Combine the ground turkey, egg substitute, 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, bread crumbs, Worcestershire sauce, carrots and onion. Mix well. Divide the turkey mixture into 4 portions and form each into 4 small loaves. Place loaves onto prepared baking sheet. Brush the loaves with the remaining barbecue sauce. Bake turkey loaves until cooked through and brown around the edges, about 35 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

(For those of you counting, each loaf is 5 points.)
